At PICA we recognise that we are situated within the unceded lands of the Whadjuk people of the Noongar Nation. We pay our respects and offer our gratitude to Elders past and present, and to those emerging leaders in the community. We acknowledge all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and the importance of their care and continued connection to culture, community and Country.

Always was, always will be.

We are closed today. Our exhibitions are always free.

Putting on an Act

Putting on an Act

Perth’s short performance festival is back!

Putting on an Act offers a unique opportunity for Western Australian performers to create bite sized original works. In past years, we have seen some highly physical and ‘extraordinary’ performances from actors, dancers, singers and those who dabble in audio. With a different program of short performances every night, each restricted to 15 minutes, this rapid-fire performance season has proven immensely popular since its inception in 1994.
